the answer can also be she isn't my auntie as in English we are able to use both spellings of the word aunt or auntie.

They aren't two separate spellings of the same word like jail/gaol.

They're two separate words.

"auntie" is originally child-speak, like "mummy, daddy, horsie, teddy".

Actually there are three spellings of the word, aunt, aunty and auntie as defined in the Cambridge English and Oxford English dictionaries as an informal form of the word for use when addressing a female older than you. Most people use these forms of the word, children, teenagers and adults alike and therefore cannot be dismissed as Duolingo caters to all groups.
